Installation

You can install Ardour with your package manager from the official Debian repositories. The name of the package is ardour or ardour-i686.

To use Ardour you need first to run JACK. If you you don't have, Ardour will install JACK. The new entry in your menu Multimedia > JACK Control is an graphical interface to use JACK.

Trouble shooting

limit of maximum locked memory

If you start Ardour you may get this warning message:

  • WARNING: Your system has a limit for maximum amount of locked memory. This might cause Ardour to run out of memory before your system runs out of memory.
    You can view the memory limit with 'ulimit -l', and it is normally controlled by /etc/security/limits.conf

To avoid this you have to edit the limits.conf

  • sudo gedit /etc/security/limits.conf

and add this line

  • @audio                -       memlock         unlimited

To activate this

  • sudo gedit /etc/pam.d/common-session

and there you add

  • session required pam_limits.so

Now you need to relogin and the warning message should be gone.
